About me

Hi my name is Lewis and I am a 3rd year chemist at the university of St Andrews. Chemistry is my passion and not just my degree, it is an area that I foster a great interest in and would love to help others develop their skill and understanding of. I find chemistry to be fun, the process of knowing a few simple principles and being able to deduce the various properties and mechanisms of elements and reactions, as well as envisage new methods and products is what draws me in.

Hi my name is Lewis and I am a 3rd year chemist at the university of St Andrews. Chemistry is my passion and not just my degree, it is an area that I foster a great interest in and would love to help others develop their skill and understanding of. I find chemistry to be fun, the process of knowing a few simple principles and being able to deduce the various properties and mechanisms of elements and reactions, as well as envisage new methods and products is what draws me in. In my tutoring I aim to instill this same process in my students, by aiding them in understanding the core of how things work the entire process can go from confusing to complete understanding, often it just requires a simple shift of reference or mind. As one of the top students in my year at university, I feel well equipped to offer differing methods of explanation or process that can aid in a student attaining the desired understanding of chemistry, wherever desired.

About my sessions

My lessons consist of ensuring students actually understand the underlying subject matter and the principles behind why a fact will be true as opposed to wrote memorisation of fact that many people will regard high school science to be. They can forget the fact but if they understand the logic behind the fact then progress can always be made in answering a problem. In understanding the origin of a phenomenon a student will actually realise what causes an effect and be better equipped to apply...

My lessons consist of ensuring students actually understand the underlying subject matter and the principles behind why a fact will be true as opposed to wrote memorisation of fact that many people will regard high school science to be. They can forget the fact but if they understand the logic behind the fact then progress can always be made in answering a problem. In understanding the origin of a phenomenon a student will actually realise what causes an effect and be better equipped to apply that knowledge and answer a wider breadth of question. When teaching a student we start from the base, what does a student already know, then we follow through with that, making logical inferences that can be backed up through each step to obtain the desired information for the question being asked. In essence, breaking down the question all the way to basics. A student isn't given the answer to a question, it is drawn out through many smaller questions that they in time learn to answer for themselves, "what do I know?" "What can I do with this?". In this method a student aims to learn for themselves the correct approach to any problem. The student will always learn better when they are guided through the question making the required steps themselves and progressively less guidance is required and they can utilise the tools they have learned to answer any question.
